Title: keyboard shortcut to start a new note
Post by Lane Michaels on Nov 28th, 2016, 10:41pm

To start a new note I simply type Return.
Having typed a $Name, I can press Return twice and start a new note.
After typing a note $Name I press Return then Spacebar to add text.

But is there a KB shortcut to start a new note while the cursor is in the $Text field?

Sorry if this is a really newbie question, but it is driving me nuts.

I have asked this question before: http://www.eastgate.com/Tinderbox/forum//YaBB.cgi?num=1460129786/4#4

J Fallows has a good solution to remap the keyboard: CMD+N to creating a new note.

Alternatively, you can use the footnote feature (if you don't mind the linking):

if you want   a sibling to the note you are editing---try the footnote feature: hit  cmd+ctrl+alt+F after selecting some text (which will be the title of the new note). You will get a linked new note. Shift+cmd+F gives you a child, linked note.

Opt+Tab cycles focus from View pane -> $Text -> [Key attributes (if present) ->] view -. etc.

So if you're just making notes and adding some text but not bothering with KAs the above is a direct view/text pane toogle. so the process goes, starting in view pane:
  • Return makes new note
  • Type title ($Name) and hit Return to close title edit.
  • Spacebar or Opt+Tab sets focus in text pane.
  • Type the $Text.
  • Opt+Tab returns focus to view pane.
  • Return starts new note, etc.....
